BALDWIN, BENJAMIN, Milford, sec. s. of Joseph the first of the same, long bef. the will of his f. rem. prob. with the gr. migrat. to N. J. a. 1668; or at least no more of him is kn. DANIEL, Milford, s. of Nathaniel of the same, m. 27 June 1667, Elizabeth d. of Henry Botsford, had Daniel, b. 1668; Elizabeth 1670; both d. young; Samuel, 29 Dec. 1673; Daniel, again, 1678; John, 1679; and Elizabeth again, 1680.

Ann had John, b. 25 Oct. 1639, wh. d. under 4 yrs. perhaps rem. to Warwick, there was among the freem. in 1655. In 1672 one of this name was at Huntington, L. I. but we may not infer, that he was the same, as this fam. name was very abund. especial. in Conn. whose peop. spread much upon L. I. HENRY, Portsmouth 1631, sent by Mason, the patentee. See Adams, Ann. 18. HENRY, Woburn, freem. 1652, was, as is said, from Devonsh. m. 1 Nov. 1649, Phebe, eldest d. of Ezekiel Richardson, of the same, had Susanna, b. 30 Aug. 1650, d. soon; Susanna, again, 25 July 1652; Phebe, 7 Sept. 1654; John, 28 Oct. 1636; Daniel, 15 Mar. 1659; Timothy, 27 May 1661; Mary, 19 July 1663, d. within 6 mos.; Henry, 15 Nov. 1664; Abigail, 20 Aug. 1667; Ruth, 21 July 1670; and Benjamin, 20 Feb. 1673; was deac. and d. 14 Feb. 1698. HENRY, Woburn, s. of the preced. m. 4 May 1692, Abigail, d. of David Fiske the sec. had Henry, b. 12 Jan. 1693; David, 9 Apr. 1696; Isaac, 20 Feb. 1700; Abigail, 13 Feb. 1702, d. soon; James, 11 July 1703, d. at 4 yrs.; Abigail, again, 19 Nov. 1707; James, again, 19 Oct. 1710; and Samuel, 31 Aug. 1717. David, his s. was f. of William, H. C. 1748; and of Samuel, H. C. 1752; and James, his s. was f. of Loammi, A.A.S. the friend and corresp. of Count Rumford, wh. project. the Middlesex canal, the earliest undertak. of that kind in N. E. Loammi, H. C. 1800, a gr. civil engineer, was s. of that Loammi. JOHN, Dedham, one of the first sett. by w. Joanna had John, b. 24 June 1635, perhaps more. JOHN, Milford 1639 (s. of that Sylvester, wh. coming from Eng. in the Martin, 1638, to Boston, with this s. d. on the voyage, leav. good est.), by first w. Mary had John, b. 1640 (wh. d. unm. a. 1677, on a voyage); Josiah, 1642; Samuel, 1645; Nathaniel, 1648; Elizabeth 1649; and Joseph, 1651; and he m. 1653, Mary, d. of Obadiah Bruen, had Mary, b. 7 Sept. 1654; Sarah, 25 Dec. 1655; Abigail, Nov. 1658, bapt. at New Haven, 27 Mar. foll.; Obadiah, Oct. 1660; George, 1662; Hannah, 1664; and Richard, 1666; rem. a yr. or two after to Newark, N. J. but came back to M. He made his will 24 May 1681, and d. bef. 5 July next; in that instr. he names all the ch. exc. Samuel, Mary, and Sarah, wh. as well as his w. were prob. d. and we learn from it, that Elizabeth had m. a Porter; that Abigail had m. a Baldwin; and Hannah m. 17 

[[vol. 1, p. 103]] Jan. of next yr. Dr. John Fiske. JOHN, Guilford, m. 12 Apr. 1653, Hannah Birchard, prob. d. of Thomas, had John, b. 5 Dec. 1654; Hannah, 6 Oct. 1656, and Thomas, 1662; but he had rem. 1662 to Norwich. JOHN, Stonington 1671, rem. to New London, there m. 24 July 1672, sec. w.

From giv. a ch. the name Sylvester; Miss Caulkins infers, that the f. was s. of the s. of him of the same name wh. d. 1638 on his voyage to our shore. JOHN, the passeng. in the Speedwell to Boston from London, 1656, aged 21, with Mary, 20 (perhaps his sis. more prob. his w.), may not be certain. determin. among so many of this name. JOHN, Salem, m. Sept. 1664, Arabella, d. of John Norman, had Hannah, b. 15 Oct. 1667; and John, 26 Nov. 1668; and d. Nov. 1673. JOHN, Billerica, may have been petitnr. in 1603 for gr. of Chelmsford, m. 15 May 1655, Mary Richardson, prob. eldest d. of Thomas of Woburn, had sev. ch. of wh. the first, Mary, b. 28 July 1659, d. four days after, was freem. 1670, and d. 25 Dec. 1687, leav. s. John, Jonathan, and Thomas; ds. Susanna, Phebe, and Mary, whose descend. are very num. in all that region. JOHN, Hadley 1671. JOHN, Milford, eldest s. of Nathaniel of the same, m. 19 Nov. 1663, Hannah, d. of Richard Osborn, had one s. b. 1666, and perhaps soon rem. to Newark. JOHN, Milford, eldest s. of John the first, of the same, m. 30 Oct. 1663, Hannah, d. of Obadiah Bruen, sis. of the sec. w. of his f. had one s. b. 1665; ano. nam. Richard, 1666; rem. to Newark, where,it is said, are descend. JOHN, Guilford, s. of John of the same, m. 1680, Experience Abell, rem. to Lebanon, there d. 1705, leav. wid. one s. John, and four ds. JONATHAN, Northampton 1668, prob. s. of Joseph, was of Milford 1674. JOSEPH, Milford 1639, by w. Hannah had Joseph, b. 1640; Benjamin, 1642; Hannah, 1644; Mary, 1645; all bapt. at once; Elizabeth 1646; Martha, 1647; Jonathan, 1649; David, 1651; and Sarah, 1653; rem. a. 1663, to Hadley, there was freem. 1666; m. for sec. w. Isabel Northam, wid. of James, wh. had come with her s. John, as wid. Catlin, from Newark, N. J. For third w. he took Elizabeth wid. of William Warriner of Springfield, and d. 2 Nov. 1684. His wid. d. 25 Apr. 1696; by a will in 1680 he dispos. of est. judiciously, thus, ld. in Hadley to childr. of his eldest s. Joseph, then d. ld. in Milford to Benjamin, Jonathan, and David; personal prop. to his eldest d. Hannah, w. of Jeremiah Hull of New Haven, to Mary, w. of John Catlin of Arthur Kill, N. J. to Elizabeth w. of James Warriner of Springfield, to John, and Hannah Hawkes, ch. of John of Hatfield, in right of their mo. Martha, dec. and to Sarah, w. of Samuel Bartlett of Northampton, wh. was ano. ch. perhaps youngest, of the testator. JOSEPH, Hadley, s. of the preced. made freem. 1670, had first w. Elizabeth and next m. Sarah, [[vol. 1, p. 104]] d. of Benjamin Cooley, and d. in mid. life, 21 Nov. 1681, leav. Joseph, James, Samuel, Mary, and Hannah; but whether these ch. were all by the sec. w. or whether she m. sec. h. is not told to me. Of the s. Joseph soon rem. to Malden; James to Milford; and in short time this name had vanish. from II. JOSIAH, Milford, s. of John the first, m. 25 June 1667, Mary Camp, d. prob. of Edward of New Haven, and d. 1683, leav. young w. and seven ch. whose names I see not. NATHANIEL, Milford 1639, had John, bef. ment. b. bef. 1640; Daniel, 1644; Nathaniel, 1645; Abigail, 1648, all by w. Abigail, wh. d. 22 Mar. 1648. He next m. Joanna Westcoat, wid. it is said, of Richard of Fairfield (but of him I kn. nothing), liv. at F. 1654, had Sarah, Deborah, and Samuel; d. 1658, and his wid. m. Thomas Skidmore. His ch. went back to M. NATHANIEL, Milford, not s. of the preced. was k. in the gr. swamp fight, 19 Dec. 1675. Other Nathaniels there were at M. nearly at the same time, as in 1677 one is nam. senr. and ano. junr. in a div. of town lds. but ten yrs. later one call. weaver, the other, cooper. NATHANIEL, Milford, s. of Nathaniel the first, m. 1671, Henry Botsford's d. Hannah, had Elizabeth b. 1672; Hannah, 1674; Nathaniel, 1676; possib. Esther, 1683; and Samuel, 1684. One Nathaniel d. at M. 1692; and that Nathaniel, wh. fell in Philip's war may have been a stranger to this blood. That s. of the first John wh. bore this name would have been among, the later inhab. of M. PETER, Salem, m. 27 May 1672, wid. Rachel Dellaclose. Felt. II. 589, shows, that Mrs. B. a French lady, from the Isle of Jersey, join. the ch. of S. 4 Aug. 1678. In a MS. he had reduc. her name, when wid. to the first syl. RICHARD, Braintree 1637, had d. Jane, and from Winthrop II. 348 is seen all that is kn. RICHARD, Milford 1640, came not with f. and mo. prob. (of wh. he was eldest s.) in the Martin to Boston 1638, but foll. soon; m. 1642, Elizabeth Alsop, sis. of Joseph Alsop the first, of New Haven, had Mary, bapt. 1643; Elizabeth 1644; Sylvanus, b. 1646; Sarah, bapt. 1649; Temperance, 1651; Mary, again, 1653; John; Theophilus, bapt. at New Haven, 19 Sept. 1658; Zechariah, b. 22 Sept. 1660; Martha, 1 Apr. 1663; and Barnabas, posthum. bapt. 1666. In some rec. will be seen Theophilus, b. 26 Apr. 1659, but perhaps it is an error of the yr. he was town clk. 1648, and rep. 1660 to his d. 23 July 1665. Perhaps he was one of the first sett. at Derby, as ment. by Trumbull, Col. Rec. I. 271, 322. He left good est. to his ch. and wid. wh. m. William Fowler. Of the ch. a suffic. story is obtain. Elizabeth m. 1663, Zechariah Burwell; Sarah m. 1667, Samuel Riggs; Temperance m. 14 Jan. 1674, Nathan Burwell; Mary m. but I find not her h.; Martha m. 1681, Samuel Nettleton; Zechariah, and Barrnabas liv. at M. in 1713; and the rest are herein account. for exc. John, wh. had gone to Eng.as in 1702 was said, twenty-five yrs. bef. and was thot. to be d. SAMUEL, Milford 1664, s. of John the first, was drown. 1674, leav. wid. Rebecca, wh. m. it is said, a Prince of Boston, wh. is unkn. to me. SAMUEL, Guilford, left w. Abigail, and ch. Abigail, aged 17; Dorothy, 12; Joanna, 20; Samuel, 7; Timothy, 5; and Nathaniel, 2; by inv. of Jan. 1696 to div. good est. SYLVANUS, Milford, eldest s. of Richard of the same, m. [[vol. 1, p. 105]] 20 Sept. 1670, Mildred, d. of Rev. Peter Prudden of the same, of Wh. I regret to be able to tell only that he was liv. 1713. SYLVESTER, the passeng. wh. d. 1635, on the voyage of the Martin from Eng. to Boston, was s. of Richard of St. Leonards in the parish of Aston Clinton, near Wendover in Co. Bucks, where his f. by will of 18 Feb. 1632, had given him a cottage and close, wh. his wid. (wh. had m. John Astwood, and was then his wid.) gave 1 Oct. 1666 to Edward Baldwin of Guilford, Co. Surrey, call. him "kinsman." He brot. w. Sarah, and perhaps all his ch. (exc. Richard), ds. Sarah, Mary, Martha, Ruth, and s. John. "On the main ocean, bound for N. E." his nuncup. will was made 21 June, and pro. 13 July of that yr. bef. Dept. Gov. Dudley by oaths of Chad Brown, Francis Bolt, James Weedon, and John Baldwin, presumed to be his s. The est. was good, and provision liberal for the six ch. as well as the wid. to wh. with s. Richard our Gen. Ct. 4 Sept. foll. commit. the admin. After some time liv. at New Haven, and Milford, she m. 1640, Capt. John Astwood of M. when her prop. was valu. at £800, beside sev. parcels of ld. She long outliv. him, and in her will of 9, pro. 20 Nov. 1669, she provides for s. John, and John his s. for Sylvanus, s. of her s. Richard, dec. and three of her ds. (one prob. hav. d.) of wh. two were m. Sarah, first w. of Benjamin Fenn, and Mary, wid. of Robert Plum, beside six gr.ds. THEOPHILUS, Milford, s. of Richard of the same, m. 8 Feb. 1683, Elizabeth Campfield, perhaps d. of Thomas, and d. 1698, leav. four ch. Abigail, aged 14; Martha, 8; Theophilus, 4; and Hezekiah, 1.

Of this Norwich stock descend. it is thot. the late Rev. Dr. B. of Boston, Hon. Simeon, and Gov. Roger S. Baldwin, gent. of high repute in Conn. TIMOTHY, Milford 1639, had right in New Haven 1640 to lot of ld. had first w. Mary, wh. d. 21 July 1647, and he m. 1649, wid.

His wid. took third h. Thomas Tappin,. The only s. liv. at M. TIMOTHY, Woburn, s. of Henry the first of the same, by w. Elizabeth had Elizabeth b. 29 May 1688; Timothy, 20 Nov. 1689; Ralph, 28 June 1691; Hannah, wh. d. 6 Sept. 1692; and he rem. to Stoneham, there was liv. 1726. Of this name Yale counts her gr. up to 1834, thirtyfour, while at Harv. and Dart. only three ca. and seven only at all the other N. E. coll. if Farmer be correct, as usual.

BALL, ALLEN, ALLIN. or ALLING, New Haven 1643, by w.

He was a capt. and d. 1710. EDWARD, Branford 1667, rem. that yr. to Newark N. J. had Caleb, Abigail, Joseph, Lydia, Moses, and Thomas; of wh. the last was progenit. of great multitude. One of this name, in 1684, was liv. at Block Isl. ELIPHALET, New Haven, s. of Alling the first, m. 13 Feb. 1673, Hannah Nash, d. of John of the same, and d. 11 July foll.

JOHN, Concord, freem. 1650, had brot. from Wiltsh. as is said, s. Nathaniel, and John, was bur. 1 Oct. 1655. JOHN, Watertown, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. m. Elizabeth d. of John Pierce of the same, had John, b. 1644; Mary; Esther; Sarah, 1655; and Abigail, 20 Apr. 1658, wh. d. soon; was much troubled by insan. of his w. wh. made separat. needful. After her d. he m. 3 Oct. 1665, Elizabeth d. prob. of Thomas Fox, had Joseph, b. 12 Mar. 1670; rem. to Lancaster, where he had short resid. 1648, there was k. by the Ind. 10 Sept. 1675. JOHN, Watertown, 8. of the preced. m. 17 Oct. 1665, Sarah, d. of George Bullard of the same, had Sarah, b. 11 July 1666; John, 29 June 1668; James, 7 Mar. 1670; Joseph, 1 May 1674; Jonathan, 29 Mar. 1680; Daniel, 2 Aug. 1683; and Abigail, 5 Oct. 1686; and he d. 8 May 1722. JOHN, New Haven, s. of Alling, the first, m. 1678, Sarah, d. of Henry Glover, had Eliphabet, b. 29 May 1680; ins. a s. 12 Sept. 1681, d. soon; Dorothy, 10 Dec. 1682; John, 30 Sept. 1683; Sarah, 26 Sept. 1687; Hannah, 12 Jan. 1690; Mercy, 5 Apr. 1692; Mary, 21 Oct. 1694; and Caleb, 6 June 1697.

Mary had Sarah, b. 1673; and for sec. w. m. a. 1685, Susanna, wid. of Nicholas Worthington (wh. had been his sec. w. and bore him two ch.), and had twelve ch. of wh. half d. young and the others were Samuel, Sarah, Francis, Benjamin, Jonathan, and Joseph, whose respective dates are not kn. He was a capt. and liv. to 95 yrs. d. [[vol. 1, p. 107]] 21 May 1741; but his w. d. 9 Mar. 1727. MATTHEW, Dorchester 1652, was liv. in 1664 to sign a petn. to the Gen. Ct. but no more can be heard of him. NATHANIEL, Concord, s. perhaps elder, of the first John, in the will of Ralph Mousall call. cousin, i. e. neph. by w. Mary had John, wh. d. 27 July 1649; Nathaniel, b. 28 Sept. 1649, d. at 2 mos.; Ebenezer; Eleazer; John, again, 15 Aug. 1660; and perhaps others; liv. in that pt. of C. which is now Bedford. RICHARD, Salisbury 1651, rem. to Dover 1668, yet perhaps only for short time. SAMUEL, Northampton, a. of Francis of Springfield, was freem. 1681, and d. 1689, leav. Francis, Mary, Elizabeth and Abigail. His wid. Mary m. 11 Apr. 1690, Benjamin Stebbins. WILLIAM, New Haven 1643, d. Apr. 1648. Of this name in 1834 Farmer found gr. at Harv. Yale and Dart. two at each, and five at the other N. E. coll.

BALLANTINE, JOHN, Boston, s. of William of the same, was a capt. twice of ar. co. into wh. he was chos. 1682, col. of regim. by w. Lydia, d. prob. of William Barrett of Cambridge, had John, b. 15 Mar. bapt. 4 Apr. 1675, 11. C. 1694; Lydia, b. 2 June 1676, d. young; William, 23 Aug. 1679; and Lydia, again, 24 Oct. 1682. He had sec. w. Mary Saxton, wid. of unkn. h. whose maiden name was Woodward, whose f. by no research has been ascert. and d. 27 Apr. 1734, in his 81st yr. and she d. 10 Nov. 1740 in her 86th. JOHN, Boston, s. of the preced. m. 9 Mar. 1703, Mary, d. of Hon. Adam Winthrop, had John, H. C. 1735, (that min. of Westfield, wh. d. 12 Feb. 1776); beside Mary, and William; was of ar. co. 1694, was in high esteem, and perhaps the rep. of 1726, tho. in Geneal. Reg. Vl. 371 this honor is ascrib. to his f. wh. was then rather advanc. in life, and whose d. was only short time bef. that of this s. 2 Jan. foll. WILLIAM, Boston, cooper, m. 23 July 1652, Hannah, d. of Angel Hollard (not Holland, as too often giv.) had John, b. 29 Sept. 1653, bef. ment.; William, 22 Sept. 1655; David, 24 Aug. 1656; the two latter d. young; William, again, 20 Dec. 1657, d. young; David, again, 5 Feb. 1659; Elizabeth 8 Mar. 1660; Benjamin, 22 July 1661; Hannah, 15 Nov. 1662; Sarah, 18 Sept. 1664; William, again, 26 Nov. 1665; Susanna, 2 Feb. 1667; and Jonathan, 19 Sept. 1669. His will of 6 Dec. 1669, but few days bef. he d. names w. Hannah and only seven ch. so that it may be conclud. that Benjamin and Sarah, not ment. had d. young. Of the inv. of any cooper in the early yrs. I have common. found a good result, and such was his; yet more import. are the questions of his b. and of his coming. Differing in opin. from a disting. descend. (Hinman in Geneal. Reg. VI. 376,) because he calls him "a Scotch gent. from Ayr. as early as 1653," I ought to offer reasons. H. contrary to the common error, that is of assum. too early a yr. for the arr. of an ancest. on our shore, takes a date that would afford currency [[vol. 1, p. 108]] to a suspicion of his being, one of the melancholy exiles from the of the civ. war. Surely he was here pretty early in 1651, prob. a yr. or two bef. as otherwise he would hardly have gain. Hollard's d. so early. A Scot we may easily believe he was, one of the founders, we kn. of the Charit. Soc. of that nation, wh. with the ever active spirit of nationality begun in Boston 1657, then compos. of twenty-seven mem. of whose names his is tenth. No sufferer in the cause of Charles Stuart can be supposed so early to have acquir. social position and property to contribute to "the box." Se Drake's Boston, 455. A cooper was more likely, two hundred yrs. ago, to have been bred at Glasgow than its neighboring, little vill. of Ayr; and one of those tradesmen, whose motto was "let Glasgow flourish," would hardly be call. gent. of A. Often the name appears Bellantine, sometimes Ballentyre.

BALLARD, oft. writ. as sound. Ballatt, JARVIS, Boston 1670, merchant, perhaps not perman. resid. JOHN, Lynn, s. of William the sec. of the same, b. prob. in Eng. had William, b. 1 Oct. 1667; Sarah, early in July 1669; Rebecca, 1 Apr. 1671; Jane, 1 Dec. 1674; John; Priscilla, 20 Dec. 1680; rem. to Andover, there m. sec. w. 16 Nov. 1681, Rebecca Hooper, perhaps d. of William of Reading, had William, 8 Nov. 1683, d. soon; and Dorothy, 30 Jan. 1685. He d. 1715, aged 62, but this, tho. the rec. says it, seems to me twenty yrs. short of the truth. JOSEPH, Andover, br. of the preced. m. 28 Feb. 1666, Elizabeth Phelps, d. perhaps of Edward the first, had Joseph, and two ds. of wh. one, Tabitha, d. 30 Mar. 1687; and the other d. 24 Feb. 1691. His w. d. 27 July 1692, and he m. 15 Nov. foll. wid. Rebecca Horne, but of wh. she. was relict I see not, and d. 1722. NATHANIEL, Lynn, wh. may have been br. of the preced. m. 16 Dec. 1662, Rebecca Hudson, perhaps d. of Thomas, had Mary, b. 13 June 1666; Nathaniel, 4 Dec. 1670 d. at less than 2 yrs.; Susanna, 12 June, 1673; Elizabeth 2 Nov. 1670; Esther, 14 Feb. 1678; Sarah, 13 May 1681; Jemima, 20 Jan. 1684; and William 23 Apr. 1686. He d. 12 Jan. 1722; and his wid. d. 16 May 1724. Mary m. Moses Haven of Framington. ROBERT, Portsmouth R. I. is among the freem. of 1655. SAMUEL, Charlestown, freem. 1680, by w. Lydia had Lydia b. 27 Oct. 1670; John, 23 Nov. 1672; wh. d. at 30 yrs.; and Elizabeth 24 Feb. 1673; and his w. d. 1 May 1678. On 1 Sept. foll. he m.

WILLIAM, Lynn 1630, as claim. for him, tho. of that date I feel less confident than of that of 1634, when he came in the Mary and John, Capt. Sayres, from London, tak. the oath to qualify him for embarc. 26 Mar. had w. and childr. and d. in few yrs. mak. a day or two bef. his nuncup. will, as may be seen in Geneal. Reg.

James from London, 1635, aged 32, with w. Elizabeth 26; and ch. Esther, 2; and John, 1; freem. 2 May 1638, ar. co. 1638, liv. I think, at Newbury, for short time, but fix. at Andover, there may have had sev. ch. and d. 10 July 1689. One of his ch. Sarah m. 24 Feb. 1670, Henry Holt; and his wid. Grace d. 27 Apr. 1694. WILLIAM, Andover, perhaps s. of the preced. m. 20 Apr. 1682, Hannah Hooper, prob. d. of William of Reading, perhaps as sec. w. for by former one must have been b. Rebecca, 2 Oct. 1668; unless some confus. Call be refer. to rec. Barry labor. much on this fam. in his Hist. of Framingham, 172, yet not to his thorough satisfact. Where he saw evid. of William's tak. o. of freem. 18 May 1631, that no other eyes discern, must be noted as one of the few errors in that valua. vol.

BALLOU, MATURIN, Providence 1639, ought to have his descend. noted, were it in my power. One of the same name, Bapt. min. of Richmond, N. H. 1770, was f. of a race of preach. of distinct.

BALSTONE, or BAULSTON, JAMES, Boston, m. Sarah, d. of Ralph Root of the same, had Sarah, b. 26 Aug. 1653; John, 3 Dec. 1654; and James, 22 June 1657; James, again, 8 Apr. 1660. JOHN, Boston, had w. Lydia, wh. join. the first ch. 22 Aug. 1647. Whether he were br. of Jonathan, or William, does not appear; yet it seems likely eno. that he was of one or both. JOHN, Boston, came from London, where he, with others, had made a contr. 31 May 1687, with Judith, wid. of Stephen Winthrop, they being then a. to emb. for N. E. He d. here 6 June 1706, aged 86, so that possib. he is the same as the preced. tho. not very prob. JONATHAN, Boston, by w. Mary had John, b. Oct. 1645; Mary; Jonathan, 2 Mar. 1652; Prudence, 28 May 1655; Lydia, 9 Oct. 1656, d. at 3 mos.; James, 1657, yet I fear this may be repetit. of the s. of James; Elizabeth 12 Aug. 1659. Robert, 1662; and Benjamin, 1663. Mary m. a. 1668, Isaac Vergoose. WILLIAM, Boston, came, no doubt, with Winthrop's fleet, desir. adm. as freem. of the comp. 19 Oct. 1630, and took the o. 18 May foll. by w. Elizabeth wh. d. early, had d. Pity, bapt.

Other ch. here bapt. were William, 14 Apr. 1633; Mary, 14 Sept. 1634; Mehitable, 24 Jan. 1636; and Meribah, 9 Apr. 1637; I presume, all by sec. w. Elizabeth and all these d. bef. him; beside ano. ch.

He was in steady employm. for town affairs, trusted among the worthiest, chos. a selectman 1637, yet in the latter part of the same yr. was disarm. with the majority of his fellow worship. as being, under the fascinat. of Mrs. Hutchinson, and sev. favorers of Wheelwright, went, 1638, to Portsmouth R.

See Haz. II. 612; 2 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII. 98 and any of the Histories of [[vol. 1, p. 110]] Winthrop, Hutchinson, Barry, or Arnold. His d. Elizabeth m. the sec.

Thomas, 1703, d. young. JOHN, Lynn, perhaps with w. Jane, came in the James, from London, Apr. 1632, arr. 12 June in 8 wks. passage, d. a. 1637, leav. wid. and s. John and Thomas. The name is spell. with r instead of n in the official vol. at Westminster, that tells how John and his w. were qualif. to pass to N. E. and in Eng. both forms are common eno. But in our country we had not for one century, if not two, such a surname as Barcroft; tho. in our print. Col. Rec. I. 108, we read that John Barcrofte ent. into recognis. in £40, with Samuel Maverick surety in £20, conditio. that Jane, w. of said John should be of good behavior, yet in the Index the n is giv. for r. JOHN, Lynn, s. perhaps of the preced. unless it be more likely, that he was gr.s. to wh. the judgm. inclines, when we see, that he m. 24 Sept. 1678, Elizabeth Eaton, prob. d. of the first John of Reading, then few days more than sixteen yrs. old.

His wid. m. 23 May 1654, Martin Saunders, of Boston, and next. deac. John Bridge of C. and thot. hers. bound to take fourth h. Edward Taylor. THOMAS, Reading, s. of John the first, b. in Eng. m. at Dedham, 15 Sept. 1648, Elizabeth d. of Michael Metcalf, had Thomas, bapt. 28 Dec. 1651, d.

BANGS, EDWARD, Plymouth, b. perhaps 1592, at Chichester, Co. Sussex, came in the Ann, 1623, and m. after 1627, as is presum. Lydia, d. of Robert Hicks, had Rebecca; John; Sarah; Jonathan, b. 1640; Lydia; Hannah; Joshua; Bethia, 28 May 1650; Mercy, and Apphia, tw. 15 Oct. 1651. He had rem. with Gov.

No certainty is attaina. as to order of births of most of these ch.
